Plaza Miguel Grau in Lima

Grau Square

Plaza Grau

Av. Grau, Paseo Colon and Via Express
  • City Center
City (Peru)

Dedicated to the Pacific War hero Admiral Miguel Grau, who lost his life in the Battle of Angamos, the "Plaza Grau" was officially inaugurated in October 1946. At the statue build with granite and bronze every year Peruvian Navy Officials lay a wreath to honour this grand captain of the Navy and all comrades who died during this terrible war.

Unfortunately this beautiful arranged plaza is located at one of the busiest streets in Lima and therefore difficult to admire. Surrounding the plaza on both sides of the Via Express you find the Palacio de Justicia (Justice Palace), the Sheraton Hotel and the Parque de Lima with the Museo de Arte (Art Museum).
